Witchcraft is a myth, it doesn’t exist – AFAW


Advocacy for Alleged Witches (AFAW) has said that witchcraft is a myth does not exist, adding that that the act of killing children and others on the premise that they are witches is barbaric and must be stopped.

This was made known in an interview with PM News, where Dr. Leo Igwe, Chief Executive Officer of AFAW, stated that persecution of alleged witches should stop, lamenting that there had been several cases children and women suspected to be witches were brutally killed in Nigeria and in some parts of Africa.

Leo Igwe said AFAW was planning a decade of activism against witches persecution in Africa to end the menace, adding that to realize the objective, the group would engage sharing latest news on witchcraft allegation/witch persecution, as well as engage state and non-state actors in the field of witchcraft accusation.

Igwe added that the group would engage in intervention to protect alleged witches and to educate the accusers and also lobby local, national and regional and global institution in tackling abuses that were linked to witch persecution and witch hunting.
